The southern end of Greater Miami is surprisingly rural and very American South in character.
In the Redland, there are vast fields of ripe strawberries, an annual cowboy-style rodeo and
the Fruit and Spice Park, a botanist's delight dedicated to tropical fruits and spices.
Nearby is the Miami Metrozoo, a cageless wonderland with over 100 species of animals,
and the quaint Cauley Square, a nostalgic collection of antiques and old-time Florida
The City of South Miami, a mellow community of beautiful homes and a charming commercial district,
is a city on the move. Just opened here is Sunset Place, a multi-level shopping and entertainment
complex that is attracting huge crowds. Other points of interest down South include:
Biscayne National Park,
Everglades National Park,
the Homestead Motorsports Complex,
the Florida Keys Factory Shops,
Everglades Alligator Farm
and Airboat Rides,
Tropical Fun Center, Monkey Jungle where the visitors
are “caged” and the animals run free,
and world-famous “Robert Is Here” fruit and milkshake stand.
The Great Sunrise Balloon Race and Festival, the Grand Prix of Miami, the Homestead Rodeo, and the
Redland Natural Arts Festival are longstanding traditional events in South Dade.
